A married woman realizes how unhappy her marriage really is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to "find herself".
Liz Gilbert (Roberts) had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having - a husband, a house, a successful career - yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali.Written by

the movie offers the ways for women who are in pain in realtionship
I think the movie offers the ways for women who suffers from broken hearted in relationship, but the movie presents the ways with more exaggerating ways. Of course, different from our daily life, there are still many things to worry. Worrying about deadline of the works, the spend of life and family, and the stress from each trivia.
However, this movie left everything aside, with a very romantic and ideal way, it tries to express the side we usually ignore or we can pay attention to it.
Enjoying this film with innocent heart, I mean appreciate this film with pure mind. Just enjoy it and taste the life philosophy it mentions. Since life has many aspects, it's not necessary to stuck ourselves in the condition which is full of reality, economics, and national issues. Losing some balance in other aspects is also the way for balance of life.
